Six films from the celebrated and idiosyncratic American director, David Lynch - Eraserhead (1977), Dune (1984), Blue Velvet (1986), Wild at Heart (1990), Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (1992) and Lost Highway (1997).
Blue Velvet: Kyle MacLachlan stars as naive young Jeffrey Beaumont, who becomes involved in murder, voyeurism, sado-masochism and a terrifying evil after he discovers a severed ear in a deserted field. Isabella Rossellini plays the nightclub singer Beaumont becomes obsessed with, a woman ensnared in a brutal relationship with the psychopathic Frank (Dennis Hopper).
In sci-fi epic 'Dune' a precious life-enhancing spice is guarded by monster worms on a distant planet. Paul Atreides (MacLachlan) is the Prince who leads his people against the territorial designs of the Harkonnens, and discovers he is earmarked for an even greater destiny.
In surrealist nightmare 'Eraserhead' Henry (John Nance) lives in a grimy tenement block set against a grey industrial landscape. When his girlfriend (Charlotte Stewart) becomes pregnant, she moves in and the couple try to look after their new baby: a slimy bundle of tissue whose screaming drives them to insanity.
In 'Lost Highway' saxophonist Fred Madison (Bill Pullman) receives a series of videos showing the exterior, then the interior, of the house he shares with his wife, Renee (Patricia Arquette). Then, after meeting a mysterious man at a party, he receives another tape showing him with Renee's dismembered corpse. Found guilty of her murder, Fred is put in prison, where he inexplicably transforms into another person - mechanic Pete Dayton (Balthazar Getty) - who is set free and goes to work for Mr Eddy (Robert Loggia), a gangster who is dating Alice (Arquette again), Renee's blonde doppelganger.
'Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me', the cinematic prequel to the 'Twin Peaks' television series, traces the events leading up to the death of troubled teen Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). The saga begins when local police discover the corpse of a young woman named Teresa Banks. The FBI arrive to investigate and turn up a set of unusual circumstances, only to have two of their agents disappear without trace. Yet while the federal investigation continues under the leadership of the newly-assigned Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), Banks's friend Laura Palmer sinks deeper and deeper into a personal hell involving nightmare visions, cocaine abuse and doomed relationships.
In 'Wild at Heart', a twisted, comedic homage to 'The Wizard of Oz', ex-con Sailor (Nicolas Cage) and Lulu (Laura Dern) are madly in love. But as they set off on the run from both the law and Lulu's mother, their attempt to leave one life for another leads them to some of the weirdest people and places in America.
